How has the issue of cyberbullying developed over the past 5 years?
After researching this topic, I found an overload of articles and information on the topic of cyber bullying. An interesting article I found contrasted the profile of a bully in the 80s or 90s to the bully of today. A decade ago, bullies had the reputation for physical harassment; kicking, punching, pushing kids into lockers, etc. With computers, everything has change. It has become easier to type something hurtful towards someone and it has become something anyone can see--and that's what makes it more hurtful. The wall the computer screen creates can be dangerous. Kids are able to say whatever they want, whenever they want with little to no consequence. I would like to research this even more and see the studies that have been conducted regarding this topic and any other information on the current issue of cyber bullying.
